With your gift we hope to:
- Provide some Nebraska hospitals with a Halo Sleep Sack for their infant that are born to promote the Back to Sleep & no blankets in the crib - Initiative to encourage parents to have their infants sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. Since "Back to Sleep" was launched in 1994, the incidence of SIDS has declined by more than 50%.
- Provide Nebraska Families that deliver their babies in some Nebraska hospitals with the book Sleep Baby: Safe and Snug by Dr. John Hutton. A classic bedtime ritual experienced through a baby's eyes, this book conveys safe sleep practices in a gentle, rhythmic way. A perfect gift for new families, it was created for Charlie's Kids Foundation, whose mission is educating families about SIDS prevention.
- Provide Owlet Smart Socks to as many families as possible. Our goal is that some day, we will have an Owlet on every baby!
- Provide Safe Sleep Education Classes free of charge to members of our community. Along w/Free CPR certified classes.
